Is this a good city for single people? For couples? For families? Why or why not?

All of the above. - Jul 11, 2016
Yes for all. However, since there are not a lot of things to do, people must be content entertaining themselves (beaches, sports, nature, books, etc.). - Mar 3, 2013
familes is ok, singles no way! couples if you like the beach. - Nov 22, 2011
Great place for families and couples. From what I've heard, it's good for single men and (as usual) more difficult for single women. - Jun 15, 2011
It is a great family city. Beaches are wonderful and child friendly, restaurants are welcoming. There are unending outdoor activities to keep kids interested, despite limited cultural offerings like museums, plays, etc. Singles can also enjoy the many benefits of living in a tourist destination, but will need to put more effort into making local friends. Nightlife and the dating pool are limited on this small island. All posted here will need to adapt to life on an island only about 2.5 times the size of DC.To avoid feeling trapped in a gilded cage, one needs to take advantage of travel options and become engaged in the vibrant local community. - Dec 20, 2010
Good for families with young kids and anyone who loves the beach/ocean sports/cricket. Couples or singles w/o young kids may be bored. Families with older kids may have bored kids. - Feb 18, 2010
Families with small children, take into consideration the poor housing pool and all the maintenance issues that no one will pay attention or care. - Jan 22, 2009
